As the latest international break is now over the Premier League have recently announced the latest round of refereeing appointments.
With the raising attention of PGMOL, the referee announcements are becoming more a serious factor as constant mistakes are made at least once a week. Chelsea fans this time will be glad to know that Anthony Taylor will not take charge of the blues this weekend.
In charge of Saturday’s clash against Newcastle will be Simon Hooper with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) being John Brooks.
Simon Hooper has already taken charge of a Chelsea fixture this season and that was Chelsea’s 2-0 home defeat to Brentford, just like Saturday this was the first game back after the international break.
The VAR referee, John Brooks has been in charge for one Chelsea game this season and that was the 3-1 away defeat to West Ham. Will lightning strike twice or has the table turned?
